High-rate and long-life LNMO cathode materials for Li-ion batteries

Nanomaterials chemistry has recently been the main impetus for electrochemical devices with advanced energy conversion and storage such as rechargeable lithium- ion batteries (LIBs). Nanostructured active materials with confined dimensions benefit fast Li+ transport due to dramatically decreased distance over which Li+ must diffuse in the solid state. Designing a one-dimensional (1D) nanoporous structure is one of the most favorable strategies to improve the electrode performance. 1D nanostructures provide short transport path along the confined radial dimension, while the connected porous framework could not only allow for efficient active mass-electrolyte contact but also accommodate better the strains related to the structural transformation upon repeated Li
